Mt. Joy, Pennsylvania

Mount Joy, Pennsylvania has a population of about 6,700 and is home to Bube's Brewery (see Amish Country Breweries) and
the Donegal Mills Plantation.  Founded in 1851 through combining with Florin and Richland, Mount Joy was named after an Irish
supply ship of the same name, being settled by Socts-Irish immigrants. The town's old flour mill is still in operation today and is
called Spangler's Flour Mill.  Alois Bube from Bavaria built the Central House Hotel and the brewery aforementioned, still in
operation today.
